Description:
This Perl script enables swapping storage engines for groups of tables.  That probably predates I_S, which makes similar scripts far easier:

shell> mysql --batch -e"SELECT CONCAT('ALTER TABLE `', table_schema, '`.`', table_name, '` ENGINE = InnoDB;') AS `#sql` FROM information_schema.tables WHERE table_schema LIKE 'test';" | mysql

It should be deprecated.

How to repeat:
N/A

Suggested fix:
Deprecate and remove.
